Backlog launches Jira Importer

One of the biggest hurdles to changing software is properly migrating your data over from your old tool to your new one. Backlog is a popular alternative to Jira, which is why we know it’s important to make it easy for users to get their info out of Jira and into Backlog.

With our new Jira importer, switching to Backlog has never been easier.

How to import projects from Jira

You can seamlessly import all your Jira projects into Backlog in a few quick steps.

Simply download the jar file and run in command line.

  1. Execute export command
  2. Fill in mapping file blanks
  3. Execute import command

Our new Jira importer supports all cloud-based Jira accounts. It does not support self-hosted projects. See this Github entry for more details.


Don’t let your data hold you back from switching to the project management app that’s right for your team. Using helpful integrations like our new Jira importer and our existing Redmine importer, you can make the leap today.
